The one simple thing: effective organization.
Whether your home is 500 sq. ft. or 3000, effective storage will always be an important part of a well-put-together dwelling. Everything needs a place but we’re not always excited about the prospect of ugly storage bins taking up space in our bedroom. That’s why we’ve come up with 4 great ways to organize a space without compromising on style or functionality.
1. Use a closet organizer.
Most standard closets are small and come with one bar across the top for hanging clothes. With this basic set up you’re losing out on immense storage space. Consider buying (or diy-ing!) a closet organizing system. They are readily available for purchase and often include multiple different clothes hanging sections as well as shelving. This can easily triple your closet space.
2. Utilize the space under your bed.
Similarly to wasted space in your closet, people often think the space under their bed is only for missing socks and dust. The average queen size bed is just over 33 sq. ft. Don’t let that space go unused. Many stores carry under-the-bed storage containers which are great for all those things you don’t need access to daily like seasonal clothing.
3. Create integrated storage options.
The best storage options are the ones you don’t even notice are there. Things like benches, chairs, and ottomans with hidden storage make great and functional space savers.
4. Find decorative bins/boxes.
Once you’ve followed steps 1-3, take stock of what you have left. These things need a place to call home. Fear not! Organization doesn’t always have to be hidden. Find some stylish bins or boxes that not only blend into your room, but add their own unique touch to your decor. Not only are they hiding the clutter, they’re great to look at, too!
The most important organizing tip is to customize your organizing system to both your space and your preferences. Each room is unique, so put some time into coming up with the best way to form a well-appointed room that captures the best combination of style and functionality.
